Efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 have largely worked, they have also significantly slowed the economy, greatly diminishing the amount of revenue to the State of Colorado and the Boulder Valley School District.

As BVSD faces the prospect of budget reductions, we intend to be transparent and provide the public with opportunities for feedback throughout the process.

On Tuesday, May 19, the Board of Education met for a special work session on the budget and set the following guiding principles that will direct the superintendent and district staff as we navigate potential budget reductions:

  • Continue to prioritize work related to the Strategic Plan
  • Be sensitive to reductions that impact our most vulnerable students/families
  • Minimize impact to classrooms
  • Work together with bargaining units to make reductions if needed
